Examining Intergraph's PSIM Plus / Security Offering

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 19, 2010

Intergraph provides one of the most commonly used solutions for public safety management and an expanding integrated security management solution. Moreover, it is a large company, acquired for over $2 Billion in October 2010.

During ASIS 2010, Intergraph started to market a PSIM "Plus" solution. This fits into an interesting security industry trend where many companies are positioning their solutions as PSIM.

In the Pro section of this report, we examine the key applications, features, components and pricing of Intergraph's security and PSIM offerings. We will show how Intergraph is positioned at the higher end of the PSIM market with feature sets and implementation constraints that match much better to very large projects than to mid size applications common in the commercial security sector. We then look into specific applications, pricing and key features offered.

As a final note, we found ascertaining detailed information on Intergraph's products, pricing and positioning to be very hard (Intergraph's website focuses on explaining high level solutions). As such, we conducted an in-depth interview with Intergraph to ascertain key unpublished data points.
